The presence and concentration of sixteen Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) were determined in Claris gariepinnus and Tilapia guineensis fish that form part of delicacy in Western Nigeria. The smoked fish were obtained from major sales depots in five selected cities within the region and analyzed. A representative potion equivalent to about 5g sample (on dry basis) was taken from pulverized sample, soxhletextracted with hexane: dichloromethane (3:1 v/v) at 50C for 6h and the aromatic… Expand
